Monday’s news: Alex O’Loughlin doesn’t lose his shirt, Daniel Dae Kim may lose his head; what’s going on with the McGarretts, and a sneak peek at tonight’s episode

DDK and Peter Lenkov spill the beans

Jim Halterman’s article today on the Futon Critic spills a little about what’s coming up tonight and in the near future for our heroes on the Five-0 team, coming straight from Daniel Dae Kim and producer Peter Lenkov:

“We end this year with a big episode,” said Executive Producer Peter Lenkov when he spoke with our Jim Halterman about this week’s episode. “It’s a mythology episode that has Victor Hesse coming back.” Hesse (played by James Marsters) is the man who killed McGarrett’s father in the series pilot but, as Lenkov teased, this episode is just a tip of the iceberg with that mystery and, he also revealed, we’ll meet “Hawaii Five-0” iconic baddie Wo Fat in tonight’s episode. Kim also took time out from shooting the show to chat about the show, how to make plot exposition fresh and interesting and what he misses about “Lost.”

Roberto Orci spills a little more

In Friday’s TV Guide article, Roberto gives the scoop on McGarrett’s past:

Orci: McGarrett’s going to find out a lot about his family, and maybe what side exactly they were on. That’s a big hint. And he’s going to pick up, in a sense, what his father was investigating, and find out potentially, how did that get him killed. Was it deeper than just what you saw in the pilot?

What can this mean…?  During the Cold War, the United States often sided with dictators (i.e. Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines, and Saddam Hussein against Iran, Iran against the Soviets) as long as it benefited the United States.  All we know right now about John McGarrett was that he didn’t spend much time with his kids, and he fought in the Vietnam War… Could John McGarrett have been standing on the wrong side of the moral line?  Who’s side was he on…?  Will this worsen Steve’s perception of his father?

A sneak peek at tonight episode…
